Everyon'e favorite giant talking Milkshake.  The pattern was not my own, though I did alter it quite a bit.  The original can be found here:  http://www.instructables.com/id/Crocheted_Master_Shake/

And here are my changes to the pattern:

The Body = same as original pattern

The Lid: 

Same until after  Ch 1, (7 sc, 2 sc in next sc), repeat around, ss in first sc to join. 

Next, Sc around, BLO.

sc around for two more rows, slip st twice, tie off and weave in ends.


THE STRAW: 

Change to size F hook

6 sc in magic ring (work this part in the spiral)

1 sc in each sc. Repeat 16 times.


THE ARMS: (X2)

Change to size E hook

Ch 5

1 sc in each st (4 sc total).  Repeat once.

Picot the edge as follows -  ch 3 in first sc, ch4 in next sc, ch 5 in next sc, ch 4 in next sc, slip st down side twice.   Reverse order for other glove.


Then as far as the face goes, after he was all sewn together, I glued felt half moons in butter and black to the front with Fabri-tac, painted the little white half moons in the pupils with a detail brush and some white craft paint, then embroidered the mouth, chin and around the eyes with black pearl cotton.  Because he's for decoration and not play, I made the stitches long so they'd be seamless.  And that's it.  Smiley

Wow! This came out really well!

And yes, you may post your modifications as long as you don't post any part of the original pattern. Creativity is never frowned upon here! Smiley For example, you might post something like:

"In row 3, I used 2dcfl instead of 2dcbl"

but not paste the pattern and THEN re-paste it with your changes.
